    About continuous Infinitive

    You don't have to be hiding there. Is this sentence right? If it is then why? I know that continuous Infinitive Infinitive can be broken into two clauses such as He appears to be living there. It also can be told It appears that he is living there. Then how can I break this following sentence , I don't want to be cooking when the guest arrives.

    Do you mean breaking it into three clauses?
